1/ #EUETS #carbon reform gets through Parliament. Now Council‘s 27 members have to reach their views. They tend to sail much closer to the law. And then it goes to Trilogue discussions. So whilst Parliament’s view is important, it is not final. Summary of Parliament view
- 2030 target slightly tighter: c64% instead of EU’s original 61% proposal
- One-off reductions of 70mt in 2024 and 50mt in 2026
- CBAM kicks in 2027 ramping up fully 2032 (prior 2034) with corresponding reduction in free allowances
- Market access getting Commission to -> 3/
produce a report in July 2023 assessing impact of restricting access to physical allowances. Frankly, this just shows a massive naivety: the vast majority of speculative elements happens in the options/derivatives market

1/ The role that yield has played in the rise of #crypto is undeniable. Sustainable yield is a different story. Join us as we deep-dive into earning yield on #Carbon, and how the protocol maximizes your returns in a secure manner.

2/ Don’t let your cryptoassets sit idle. Earn passively (be it a bear or bull market) with Carbon — the DeFi protocol that puts your assets to work, so you don’t have to. There are 2 key ways to earn passively with Carbon:

⚡ Staking
🌊 Liquidity rewards
3/ Staking⚡

Carbon operates on a dPOS mechanism, rewarding stakers for securing the network. As $SWTH emissions inflate at a decreasing rate, the floating supply of SWTH reduces as development ramps up, calibrating a balance between sustainable yields & rewarding early adopters

A LOT of countries have been making noises about introducing new or reformed carbon taxes 💷 of late. Including...THREAD. 1/6.

Starting July 1, Austrians will pay a new #carbontax of 30 euros (approximately $33) per ton of CO2 — a cost that’s likely to be added to consumer bills by companies. That amounts to 55 euros ($60) per ton in 2025. 2/6.…

According to the @WSJ, the American Petroleum Institute has drafted a proposal urging #Congress to adopt a carbon tax. The proposal suggests rebating some of the revenue collected to households & investing the rest of the money in new tech. 3/6.…

Our analysis of materials released by @IESO_Tweets in response to our Freedom of Information Request

1. Thirty-two Ontario municipalities, representing almost 60% of Ontario’s population, have asked @ONgov to phase-out gas-fired electricity generation. 1/

2. According to Ontario’s Independent Electricity System Operator’s (IESO) October 7, 2021 (misleading) report,Decarbonization and Ontario’s Electricity System, phasing-out gas power by 2030 would raise residential electricity bills by 60% [page 1].

3. In response to a Freedom of Information Request (FOI), we obtained drafts of the IESO’s report. These drafts reveal the following facts:

"The United States tops the carbon #footprint ranking (Fig. 1,top left) under both DBA (1,060 MtCO2e) and RBA (909 MtCO2e) accounting perspectives, followed by China (528/561 MtCO2e), Germany (305/329 MtCO2e) and India (268/240 MtCO2e)."

BREAKING! The European Commission just confirmed that it promotes "like for like or better" #biodiversity #offsetting, as part of #NatureBasedSolutions!
Why is it major news? Thread 1/11…
Under this approach, the destruction of a habitat for flamingos in Spain could be considered to be offset by the restoration of a habitat for bats in Greece, as long as you claim that it is "better." 2/11
Beyond its obvious lack of environmental integrity, this approach will also enable the financialisation of biodiversity destruction through the creation of a related #offset market, and shift the conversation away from the need to curb destruction: 3/11

I'd recommend everyone listen to this. Not directly related to #VLRM in terms of the #GSX, but in terms of the 20% option on GSX group! Very exciting indeed! this is very exciting.

If you listen to some of the concepts talked about linking different trading groups together such as FIAT, #Crypto, #Metals #Carbon etc then GSX can do ALL of that.
The story is unfolding nicely, becoming more clearer with each passing week about how this deal came about now and the option on both companies, essentially this is Patrick's vision from his previous works but GSX have the technology to make it happen.

(1/17) We've been talking a lot about #carbonmarkets — which has felt like a shift for some of our trad #commodities, #metals, #privacy and #tech listeners. We wanted to share how we see #smartermarkets as the thread stringing them together, in this 🧵:
(3/17) Globally, we've had since the 1800s to understand commodity #markets. #CarbonTrading didn't start until 1997 when 180 countries signed the #KyotoProtocol. With it — 4 types of #carboncredits were created: AAU, RMU, ERU and CER.

There's a carbon rush currently going on in the #Pacific. All sorts of shady characters are being drawn to countries such as #PNG in search of striking gold in the form of 'green' and 'blue' carbon offsets generated by the regions vast forests and oceans...🧵
The sudden demand for carbon credits appears to be at least partly due to the Australian government's continuing support for the gas industry, and the need for cheap carbon offsets to greenwash their image and claim #NetZero emissions.
The predatory behaviour of some #carbon #offset project developers in the Pacific is an inevitable consequence of countries and companies scrambling to buy cheap offsets instead of leaving fossil fuels in the ground or making real reductions in their carbon emissions.

1) #HBARbarians! Let’s talk #NFTs. #NFT skeptic? 🧐Read this 🧵. NFTs go far beyond #jpeg & are the future of #Web3, “gateway” to #crypto, & will be larger than #cryptocurrencies. This aims to educate #Hedera community & raise awareness to our #HBAR #NFTartists. Wallet flex 💪👇
2) #HBARbarians who think #NFTs are a bubble or do not want to buy an #NFT. That's fine. But #NFTs are vitally important for #HBAR to appreciate in value. See #Solana ($SOL) this year? Yep, #NFTs 🤯 (1)
3) Even if you don't buy an #NFT, you can help. See a #Hedera artist whose art resonates w/ you? Simply hit "like", "RT", or "comment" something nice. It goes a long way in ushering in new #HBAR buyers & #NFTartists.

The @OECD Economic Survey of 🇸🇰 #Slovakia has been released!

Preparing for rapid population ageing, boosting productivity & greening the #recovery from #COVID19 represent key policy priorities going forward.
After a deep economic contraction in 2020, #Slovakia’s economy is recovering.
Risks surrounding the outlook remain high. Supply disruptions are leading to volatile production and surging #inflation in #Slovakia.

Between June 2021 & January 2022, the price of “nature based” #offsets — such as those from tree-planting schemes 🌳🌳 — increased more than 3-fold from around $4.65 per tonne of #carbon to around $14.40, according to S&P Global Platts… #CCUS #NetZero
Interest in unregulated #offsets market, has grown with proliferation of #NetZero emission pledges since the #COP26 summit + rising pressure on curbing global warming. Expectations are the voluntary carbon market will grow this yr into a space worth $ Bn's…
Though #oil companies claim to use only “high-quality” #offsets as part of their #NetZero goals, monitoring millions of acres of forest is hugely challenging. Experience of recognised programs like UN’s REDD initiative = mixed at best…

Thread: General comments & forecasts for the global oil market in 2022. Constructive comments are welcome. If comments don't fit your books, just ignore them.

1-13 The oil market will be tighter than forecasts, especially relative to OPEC’s forecast. No major inventory build.
2- The biggest surprise might come from increased demand for oil in the oil-producing countries themselves. That is a double-edged sword; BULLISH.

On the other side, if #COVID19 & its varients come back with vengeance: lockdowns, inventory build, etc.. OPEC+ is expected to react
3- Average oil prices for 2022 will be higher than that of 2021, but prices will be range-bound, even when China refills its SPR.

No $100 oil under normal circumstances. Possible under certain conditions. #Oil #OPEC #OOTT #China
